Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda

They curse the dry unyielding ground stubble from impotent crops remain toppled huts call out in anger “we will never be whole again they have maligned our children destroyed our spirit” only bitter weeds grow strong *** lovingly they pour water on hardened ground fingers soiled with ancestral dirt music filters through new huts goldenContinue reading “Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda”

War Torn #Peaceonearth #poetry
